        I came to study in the United States a year ago. Yet I did not know the real American society until I was hurt in a car accident because after the accident I had to see a doctor and go to court.

    After the accident, my roommate called a doctor for me. I was very grateful and decided to repay him one day. But the next day, he asked me to pay him $200 for what he had done. I was amazed. He had good reason to charge me, he said. And if I wanted to collect money from the person who was responsible for my accident, I’d have to have a good lawyer. And only a good doctor can help me get a good lawyer. Now that he had helped me find a good doctor, it was only fair that I should pay him. But every day I went to see the doctor, I had to wait about 50 minutes. He would see two or three patients at the same time, and often stop treating one so as to see another. Yet he charged me $115 each time. The final examination report consisted of ten lines, and it cost me $215. My lawyer was all smiles the first time we met. But after that he avoided seeing me at all. He knew very well the other party was responsible for the accident, yet he hardly did anything. He simply waited to collect his money. He was so irresponsible that I decided to refuse his help. And he made me pay him $770.

    Now I had to act as my own lawyer. Due to my inexperience, I told the insurance company the date I was leaving America. Knowing that, they played for time and I left without getting a cent.

    My experiences taught me two things about America: firstly, in a country like America money is everything. It is more important than friendship, honor or professional morality. Secondly, foreigners are still being unfairly treated. So when we talk about America, we should see both its good and bad sides.

    32. The author’s roommate offered to help him because________.

    A. he felt sorry for the author  

    B. he thought it was a chance to make some money

    C. he knew the doctor was a very good one  

    D. he wanted the author to have a good lawyer

    33. A good doctor is essential for the writer to __________.

    A. be properly treated

    B. talk with the person responsible for the accident

    C. recover before he leaves America

    D. eventually get the responsible party to pay for his injury

    34. Both the doctor and the lawyer in this passage are very__________.

    Afriendly      B. greedy    Cprofessional Dbusy

    35. What conclusion can you draw from the story?

       A. Going to court is something very common in America.

       B. One must be very careful while driving a car.

       C. there are more bad sides in America than good sides.  

       D. Money is more important than other things in the US.

         As the pace of life continues to increase, we are fast losing the art of relaxation. Once you are in the habit of rushing through lift, being on the go from morning till night, it is hard to slow down. But relaxation is essential for a healthy mind and body. 

     Stress is a natural part of everyday life and there is no way to avoid it. In fact, it is not the bad thing it is often supposed to be. A certain amount of stress is vital to provide motivation and give purpose to life. It is only when the stress gets out of control that it can lead to poor performance and ill health. 

         The amount of stress a person can withstand depends very much on the individual. Some people are not afraid of stress, and such characters are obviously prime material for managerial responsibilities. Others lose heart at the first sign of unusual difficulties. When exposed to stress, in whatever form, we react both chemically and physically. In fact we make choice between "fight" or "flight" and in more primitive days the choice made the difference between life or death. The crises we meet today are unlikely to be so extreme, but however little the stress, it involves the same response. It is when such a reaction lasts long, through continued exposure to stress, that health becomes endangered. Such serious conditions as high blood pressure and heart disease have established links with stress. Since we cannot remove stress from our lives (it would be unwise to do so even if we could), we need to find ways to deal with it.

    21. People are finding less and less time for relaxing themselves because_____.

    A. they regard working as their greatest enjoyment 

    B. they believe that work is superior to relaxation

    C. they are travelling fast all the time  

    D. they are becoming busier with their work than ever before 

    22. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?

    A. We can find quite a few ways to avoid stress   

    B. Stress is always harmful to people’s health

    C. Different people can withstand different amounts of stress 

    D. It is easy to change the habit of keeping oneself busy with work.  

    23. In the last sentence of the passage, "do so " refers to ______.

      A. expose ourselves to stress            B. remove stress from our lives

      C. find ways to deal with stress          D. established links between diseases and stress

    Luke has always been my closest and constant companion these past five years. In fact, he is very friendly to me especially when I take care of other furry friends in our shelter.

    There have been a lot of forest fires during the summer season. Not far from our shelter, a forest caught fire during this hot summer. Luke rushed towards the forest where flames send out a terrible heat. There’s no longer any hope at the moment to wait for Luke to come back to the shelter. In fact, I was waiting for the firemen to announce me his death in the forest. Suddenly, a fireman burst into my office and informed me that my dog Luke succeeded in saving four cats which were trapped by the flames. Luke seized the kittens, one by one moving them to a safe place.

    I immediately accompanied the fireman to the forest to pick up the rescued kittens, but Luke was not there. Then we heard the sound of a dog came from the forest barking furiously. The firemen followed the tracks of the dog until they found him barking loudly by the side of an injured fireman who was lying on the ground.

    Air travel is such an everyday experience these days that we are not surprised when we read about a politician having talks with the Japanese Prime Minister one day, attending a meeting in Australia the following morning and having to be off at midday to sign a trade agreement in Hong Kong. But frequent long-distance flying can be so tiring that the traveler begins to feel his brain is in one country, his digestion(消化) in another and his powers of concentration nowhere – in short, he hardly knows where he is.

     Air travel is so quick nowadays that we can leave London after breakfast and be in New York in eight hours, yet what really disturbs us most is that when we arrive it is lunch time while we have already had lunch on the plane and are expecting dinner.

    Doctors say that air travelers are in no condition to work after crossing a number of time zones. Airline pilots, however, often live by their own watches.

    24. After a long air travel, a traveler _______.

       A. finds himself in a different world      B. finds his brain apart from his body 

    C. has little sense about where he is

    D. finds himself in Hong Kong the following morning   

    25. Which of the following is right according to the passage?

       A. A traveler from London to New York needs lunch during his travel.   

    B. A traveler from London to New York doesn’t need any lunch on the plane. 

    C. The lunch hour in New York is eight hours later than that in London.  

    D. In fact, the distance from London to New York is only four hours’ trip by air.

    26. Which one of the following statements has the same meaning with the sentence “Airline pilots often live by their own watches.” ______?

       A. They don’t trust others’ watches.       B. They often change their watches.

       C. They make a living by their own watches.

    D. They live according to the time by their watches, whatever the local time is.

    27. Doctors suggest air travelers_______.

       A. should rest in a place with good condition

       B. should work in good condition since they just finish a long journey

    Far from the traditional image of a culture of aggressive masculinity (阳刚) in which students either sink or swim, the absence of girls gives boys the chance to develop without pressure to conform (符合) to a stereotype, a US study says. Boys at single-sex schools were said to be more likely to get involved in cultural and artistic activities that helped develop their emotional expressiveness, rather than feeling they had to conform to the “boy code” of hiding their emotions to be a “real man”.

    The findings of the study go against received wisdom that boys do better when taught alongside girls.

    Tony Little, headmaster of Eton, warned that boys were being faded by the British education system because it had become too focused on girls. He criticized teachers for failing to recognize that boys are actually more emotional than girls. The research argued that boys often perform badly in mixed schools because they become discouraged when their female peers do better earlier in speaking and reading skills.

    But in single-sex schools teachers can tailor lessons to boys’ learning style, letting them move around the classroom and getting them to compete in teams to prevent boredom, wrote the study’s author, Abigail James, of the University of Virginia.

    Teachers could encourage boys to enjoy reading and writing with specifically “boy-focused” approaches such as themes and characters that appeal to them. Because boys generally have more acute vision, learn best through touch, and are physically more active, they need to be given “hands-on” lessons where they are allowed to walk around. “Boys in mixed schools view classical music as feminine (女性的) and prefer the modern style in which violence and sexism are major themes,” James wrote.

    Single-sex education also made it less likely that boys would feel they had to conform to a stereotype that men should be “masterful and in charge” in relationships. “In mixed schools boys feel forced to act like men before they understand themselves well enough to know what that means,” the study reported.

    27. What does Tony Little say about the British education system?

    A. It makes girls less emotional than boys.

    B. It fails more boys than girls academically.

    C. It fails to give boys the attention they need.

    D. It places more pressure on boys than on girls.

    28. According to Abigail James, boys perform better in single-sex schools because ________.

    A. boys can choose to learn whatever they are interested in

    B. boys focus more on their lessons without being disturbed

    C. teaching quality is relatively higher than in mixed schools

    D. teaching can be designed to suit the characteristics of boys

    29. Which of the following is NOT characteristic of boys?

    A. Boys have sharper vision.                           B. Boys enjoy being in charge.

    C. Boys like “hands-on” lessons.             D. Boys prefer physical activities.

    30. What is mainly discussed in the passage?

    A. Problems boys may have in mixed schools.

    B. Boys’ physical and mental growth in school.

    C. Advantages of single-sex education for boys.

    D. Boys’ disadvantages over girls in mixed schools.

    Time spent in a bookshop can be most enjoyable, whether you are a book-lover or merely go there to buy a book as a present. You may even have entered the shop just to find shelter from a sudden shower.

    Whatever the reason, you can soon become totally unaware of your surroundings. The desire to pick up a book with an attractive dust-jacket is irresistible but you might end up with a rather dull book. A book-lover rarely adopts this method of selection. All too often you soon become absorbed in some book or other, and usually it is only much later that you realize you have spent far too much time there and must dash off to keep some forgotten appointment — without buying a book, of course.

    This opportunity to escape the realities of everyday life is, I think, the main attraction of a bookshop. There are not many places where it is possible to do this. A music shop is very much like a bookshop. You can wander round such places to your heart’s content. If it is a good shop, no assistant will approach you with the unavoidable greeting: “Can I help you, sir?” You needn’t buy anything you don’t want. In a bookshop an assistant should remain in the background until you have finished browsing. Then, and only then, are his services necessary. Of course, you may want to find out where a particular section is, but when he has led you there, the assistant should retire considerately and look as if he is not interested in selling a single book.

    You have to be careful not to be attracted by the variety of books in a bookshop. It is very easy to enter the shop looking for a book on, say, ancient coins and to come out carrying a copy of the latest best-selling novel and perhaps a book about brass-rubbing — something which had only uncertainly interested you up till then. This volume on the subject, however, happened to be so well illustrated and the part of the text you read proved so interesting that you just had to buy it. This sort of thing can be very dangerous. Apart from running up a huge account, you can waste a great deal of time wandering from section to section.

    24. What is most likely to happen to a book-lover in a bookshop?

       A. Lost in some book, he forgets something else important.

    B. Annoyed by the shop assistant, he dashes off for an appointment.

       C. Attracted by its cover, he buys some book turning out to be a dull one.

       D. Unsatisfied with its surroundings, he leaves the shop without buying a book.

    25. In the author’s opinion, a shop assistant in a bookshop is supposed to ________.

       A. greet customers in a more suitable manner

       B. retire from the job if he has no passion for it

       C. leave customers alone before services are needed

       D. offer nice services from the very moment customers step into the shop

    26. In a bookshop with a diversity of books, you tend to ________.

       A. ignore the latest best-selling novel

       B. be trapped in a dangerous situation

       C. buy some book you are not at all interested in

       D. buy other books instead of those you initially want

    As a five-year-old, I didn’t know how poor we were. My father would not be home that Christmas Eve. He was in the Army serving overseas. My mother and I worked all afternoon making tree decorations. The kitchen table was crowded with stars made of shiny paper. We were going to get the Christmas tree in the evening, when the prices for them usually dropped.

    After sunset, we walked four blocks to a parking lot where they sold Christmas trees. “How much is your cheapest tree?” My mother asked the man standing at the entrance. He held his gloved hands over the fire. “Thirty dollars, miss.”

    Her smile disappeared, “Nothing for less?” The man picked up a small tree branch and dropped it into the fire. “I just work here. I can’t change the price.”

    The sudden melancholy(忧郁)in my mother’s face made me sad. The man looked down at me for what felt like a long time; it probably was only moments. He pointed at a pile of branches in the corner. “Behind it is a tree that we can’t sell. You can have it for free.”

    “Thank you, sir,” I said.

    There it was, a thing just a little taller than me. It had few branches—almost a ghost(幽灵)of a tree. My mother asked, “Can we take some of these branches?” He waved his arm. “Take it all if you want to, miss.”

    We headed back home. We set the tree in the living room. I couldn’t imagine how we could hang many decorations on such a tree. She was smiling again, “Go to sleep now, son. Santa will decorate the tree for us.”

    I woke at dawn and rushed into the living room. To my amazement, the tree had a beautiful natural shape. The decorations shone in the morning light. My mother had somehow fixed branches to the tree trunk. A few weeks later, my father returned. When I told him about the tree, tears filled the eyes of that strong soldier. 

    Since then, I have seen many wonderful holidays. That Christmas remains as my favorite.

    21. Why did the mother decide to get the tree in the evening?

    A. She wanted to buy it at a lower price.

    B. She was fully occupied during the day.

    C. She was waiting for the father to pick it up.

    D. She had made an appointment with the seller.

    22. How did the son feel when he spotted the tree behind the branches?

    A. Disappointed.             B. Delighted.               C. Frightened.            D. Relieved.

    23. What brought the father to tears?

    A. The pain of his war wound.                           B. The efforts his wife put into the tree. 

    C.       The reunion with his family.                            D. The decorations his son made for the tree.

    Earlier this month, blogger Lisa Henderson announced that she and her husband John had decided not to have Christmas. The family, who lives in Utah, will still put up decorations, but presents from Santa are a no-go this year.

    “John and I feel like we are fighting a very hard uphill battle with our kids when it comes to their rights,” Henderson wrote on her blog. “It is one of the biggest struggles as a parent these days in middle class America. Our kids have been acting so ungrateful lately. ... John said, “We shouldn’t just celebrate Christmas. And, so that’s what we did.”

    Instead, the Hendersons are putting the money they would have spent on gifts toward service projects in order to teach their three sons the “pleasure of giving.” The children will still receive gifts from grandparents and other family members, but this year, she said, their letters to Santa will be asking him to find someone who needs presents more than they do.

    In an interview with ABC News, 11-year-old Caleb Henderson admitted that he and his brothers had been behaving badly. “We would hit each other. We were fighting and crying,” he admitted, and Lisa said that when she broke the news to her sons, they cried pretty hard.

    But so far, Henderson told Fox News last week, the family is having a sudden turning this into a different kind of gift. They have already held a clothing drive and sent boxes of clothes and candy to a village in the Philippines that was hit hard last year by Typhoon Haiyan.

    “The children were excited and kept wanting to give more and more,” she reported on her blog.

    Many readers responded positively to Henderson’s post. Some sharing their own stories of limiting Christmas in order to teach their children to be charitable(仁慈的) or grateful. “As parents you’re giving your kids something so much more special than a bunch of gifts on Christmas,” one wrote.

    But Henderson received negative follow-ups as well on her blog. Responding to critics, she updated her blog with a statement that reads, in part:

    I just wanted to explain a couple of things. First, my kids are in no way hurt for things.... They have reacted by making gifts for each other and packing them into each other’s stockings stealthily(偷偷地). They are learning exactly what we wanted them to learn, because they are not moving around feeling sorry for themselves. They are thinking of others.

    The second thing I wanted to explain is why I wrote this post. Some people seem to think I wrote this for attention. Ummm, the attention you get from posts like this is not good and actually extremely difficult to deal with.... The reason I wrote this post is I want to empower parents to feel like it’s okay to take a stand. ... I wanted to share what we are doing, so any parents that feel they are struggling with the same issues in their home can see what others are doing and get ideas for their family. My intention is to help support other parents and to raise amazing kids.

    28. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 can be replaced by_______.

    A. when Lisa told the kids they didn’t spend Christmas, they felt extremely sad

    B. all the kids let out an excited cry when Santa sent them Christmas presents

    C. the moment Lisa said the Philippines was hit by typhoon, they burst into tears

    D. when their grandparents didn’t send them gifts, the kids couldn’t help crying.

    29. From the last two paragraphs we can conclude that_______.

    A. the writer strongly called on people to care for the unfortunate

    B. educating kids needs regular communication and great patience

    C. the writer wants to share his experiences of raising amazing kids

    D. parents should praise children for their kindness to other people

    30. Which of the following can be the best title?

    A. Why These Parents Decided Not To Celebrate Christmas.

    B. How Americans usually Spend A Traditional Christmas.

    C. A Hard Battle between Kids And Parents At Christmas.

    D. What American People Do To Have A Nice Christmas

    When the dog named Judy spotted the first sheep in her life, she did what comes naturally. The four-year-old dog set off racing after the sheep across several fields and, being a city animal, lost both her sheep and her sense of direction. Then she ran along the edge of cliff( 悬崖) and fell 100 feet, bouncing off a rock into the sea.

    Her owner Mike Holden panicked and called the coastguard of Cornwall, who turned up in seconds. Six volunteers slid down the cliff with the help of a rope but gave up all hope of finding her alive after a 90-minute search.

    Three days later, a hurricane(飓风) hit the coast near Cornwall. Mr. Holden returned home from his holiday upset and convinced his pet was dead. He comforted himself with the thought she had died in the most beautiful part of the country.

    For the next two weeks, the Holdens were heartbroken. Then, one day, the phone rang and Steve Tregear, the coastguard of Cornwall, asked Holder if he would like his dog back.

    A birdwatcher, armed with a telescope, found the pet sitting hopelessly on a rock. While he sounded the alarm, a student from Leeds climbed down the cliff to collect Judy.

    The dog had been knocked unconscious(失去知觉的)at first but had survived by drinking water from a fresh scream at the base of the cliff. She may have fed on the body of a sheep which had also fallen over the edge. “The dog was very thin and hungry,” Steve Tregear said , “It was a very lucky dog. She survived because of a plentiful supply of fresh water,” he added.

    It was, as Mr. Holden admitted, “a minor miracle(奇迹)”.

    24. The dog Jody fell down the cliff when she was ________.         

    A. rescuing her owner                                  B. caught in a hurricane

    C. blocked by a rock                           D. running after a sheep

    25. Who spotted Judy after the accident?

    A. A student from Leeds                         B. A birdwatcher

    C. Six volunteers                                D. The coastguard of Cornwall

    26. What can we infer from the text?

    A. People like to travel with their pets.

    B. Judy was taken to the fields for hunting.

    C. Holden cared little where Judy was buried.

    D. Luck plays an important role in Judy's survival.

    27. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?

    A. Miracle of the Coastguard.                         B. Coming Back from the Dead.

    C. Dangers in the Wild                        D. Surviving a Hurricane.

    About 21,000 young people in 17 American states do not attend classes in school buildings. Instead, they receive their elementary(初等的) and high school education by working at home on computers. The center for Education Reform says the United States has 67 public "cyberschools" and that is about twice as many as two years ago.

    The money for students to attend a cyberschool comes from the governments of the states where they live. Some educators say cyberschools receive money that should support traditional public schools. They also say it is difficult to know if students are learning well.

    Other educators praise this new form of education for letting students work at their own speed. These people say cyberschools help students who were unhappy or unsuccessful in traditional schools. They say learning at home by computer ends long bus rides for children who live far from school.

    Whatever the judgment of cyberschools, they are getting more and more popular. For example, a new cyberschool called Commonwealth Connections Academy will take in students this fall. It will serve children in the state of Pennsylvania from ages five through thirteen.

    Children get free equipment for their online education. This includes a computer, a printer, books and technical services. Parents and students talk with teachers by telephone or by sending emails through their computers when necessary.

    Students at cyberschools usually do not know one another. But 56 such students finished studies at Western Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School recently met for the first time. They were guests of honor at their graduation.

    21. What do we know from the text about students of a cyberschool?

    A. They have to take long bus rides to school.

    B. They study at home rather than in classrooms.

    C. They receive money from traditional public schools.

    D. They do well in traditional school programs.

    22. What is a problem with cyberschools?

    A. Their equipment costs a lot of money.

    B. They get little support from the state government.

    C. The students find it hard to make friends.

    D. It is hard to know students' progress in learning.

    23. Cyberschools are getting popular because _________.

    A. they are less expensive for students

    B. their graduates are more successful in society

    C. their students can work at their own speed

    D. they serve students in a wider age range

       A series of climate reports show that the temperatures on earth are rising. That is the bad news. The good news is that countries are working together to fight climate change. Michael Oppenheimer is a professor of geosciences and international affairs. He says air pollution emissions must be reduced before temperatures rise.

       The recent United Nations Talks in Peru were designed to prepare officials for a meeting in Paris, France later this year. Many nations will sign a global climate agreement at the meeting. The agreement reached in Peru is different from earlier agreements. Developing countries like China and India are promising to join richer countries in reducing emissions. U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry says developing countries are having an effect on the environment. “More than half of global emissions are coming from developing countries. So it is imperative that they act, too.”

       China and United States acted—they signed an agreement. American officials said the U. S. would reduce emissions between 26 and 28 percent by 2025. China said it would begin reducing emissions in 2030. Michael Oppenheimer says other countries will release their environmental plans early this year. He says negotiations continue to discuss details of the agreement before the conference opens in Paris. But he says he hopes people understand that the agreement is just the beginning of efforts to reduce global warming.

       Experts say a two-degree rise in temperature above pre-industrial times will cause serious damage that cannot be reversed. The pre-industrial period ended in the middle of the 18th century. That was followed by the industrial revolution, when machines and new manufacturing processes were created. Professor Oppenheimer says if countries do not take action, the planet will become warmer faster than at any time in the history of civilization.

    32. What is the main idea of the passage?

       A. Temperatures on earth are going up

       B. Countries are working together to handle climate change

       C. A global climate agreement was reached in Peru

       D. Developing countries take action to reduce global warming

    33. Michael Oppenheimer thinks that ____________.

       A. temperature rise caused by new technology         B. developing countries are to blame for air pollution

       C. China has a large effect on the environment         D. action should be taken to reduce air pollution

    34. What makes the agreement reached in Peru special?

       A. More people join in reducing global warming

       B. Such a meeting has been held in Peru for the first time

       C. More details of the agreement have been discussed

       D. China and India will join in reducing emissions

    35. What may be the main reason why the planet becomes warmer faster than before?

       A. People in modern society lack the sense of environmental protection

       B. Machines and new manufacturing processes will cause more emissions

       C. Developed countries don’t want to take responsibility for environment

       D. Developing countries have to ability to reduce air pollution emissions

    As everything changes, one of the most important perspectives you can adopt is staying true to who you are. If you really study truly successful people, and those living out their dreams, you will find a common characteristic: they value and express who they are, regardless of other’s opinions or criticism. I have carefully crafted these tips to help you live a dynamic and fulfilled life.

    Always be yourself

    Do not change to fit the mold of society and do not follow blindly the advice people around offer you, unless it is for the better. Do no let other’s opinions drown out your real potential and belief in yourself. Insist on being different and do not change so that people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

    Choose your values wisely

    Be willing to deepen your sense of self. Create a personal philosophy of life. Know your values and what you care about most. Doing so will increase your confidence.

    Trust your vision even when everybody else is doubting it

    People who care what others think of them will always be limited to others’ opinions. Remember when you pursue greatness, do not expect others to support you because you will represent the courage, strength, and vision they do not yet have.

    Keep a good circle of friends

    The greatest support system in the world is good friends. You cannot be careless here; you need quality friends are those people who know all about you and still like you. They will inspire you. Nothing is more valuable then your inner circle and the greatest value is one person caring for another.

    The point is that nobody can guide you better than yourself. Listening to an learning from others have immeasurable value, and feedback from the right people is needed, but ultimately your decisions are up to you. The world needs you to operate at your absolute best!

    Two women captured our hearts; both were dying of brain cancer. Both taught us to cherish life — that nothing is greater than the human spirit.

    Brittany Maynard, 29, fought for the right to die with dignity. Lauren Hill, 19, fought for a dream — to play in a college basketball game before she dies. Their stories are sad and tragic, yet inspirational, courageous and beautiful. For a brief moment, both women took us away from the negative political advertisements blasting from our TVs and gave us the most important message of all: to enjoy our time on Earth.

    Maynard conveyed a stirring message about being allowed to die on her own terms; Hill’s cause was infectious as she conveyed a never-give-up spirit.

    On Saturday, Maynard who suffered from terminal brain cancer took her last breath. She had moved to Oregon to end her life under that state’s Death With Dignity Act. Before taking medication that ended her life, Maynard signed off, saying, “Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love.” “It is people who pause to appreciate life and give thanks who are happiest. If we change our thoughts, we change our world! Love and peace to you all.”

    A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Maynard had enjoyed traveling the world before her diagnosis. “The world is a beautiful place,” she said. “Travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers.”

    She died surrounded by those who loved her most. A once taboo topic — letting a terminally ill patient die on his or her terms — was thrust into the spotlight. As news of her death spread, her story went viral by Sunday afternoon. Mourners tweeted and memorialized her across social media.

    21. What is Brittany Maynard’s dream?

       A. To play in a college basketball game.     B. To die in a way she preferred

       C. To persuade us into travelling       D. To share her story with others

    22. Both women conveyed a message that______.

       A. nothing is more vital than life     B. everyone has the right to end his/her life

       C. it is unnecessary to fear death at all     D. travelling is of great use to staying healthy

    23. How did Brittany feel before her death?

       A. Forgetful    B. Fearful

       C. Grateful     D. Heartbroken

    24. What does the underlined word “tweeted” in the last paragraph mean?

       A. Talked about the hot topic on the Internet    B. Wrote something on the Internet

       C. Said goodbye to someone    D. Expressed thanks to someone

    Speed-reading is a vital skill in the Internet age. We skim over articles and e-mails to try to grasp key words and the essential meaning of a certain text. Bombarded(轰炸)with information from our electronic devices, it would be impossible to cope if we read word by word, line by line. But a new trend calls on people to unplug and enjoy reading slowly.

    A recent story from The Wall Street Journal reported on a book club in Wellington, where members meet in a café and turn off their smartphones. They sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour. Unlike traditional book clubs, the point of the Slow Reading Club isn’t exchanging ideas about a certain book, but to get away from electronic devices and read in a quiet, relaxed environment. According to the Journal, the Wellington book club is just one example of a movement started by book lovers.

    Slow readers, such as The Atlantic’s Maura Kelly, say a regular reading habit sharpens the mind, improves concentration, reduce stress levels and deepens the ability to understand others.

    Yet technology has made us less attentive readers. “Screens have changed our reading habits from the linear, left-to-right sequence, to a wild skimming and skipping pattern as we hunt for important words and information, which leads to weaker comprehension than reading plain text. The Internet may have made us stupider,” says Patrick Kingsley from The Guardian.

    Slow reading means a return to an uninterrupted pattern, in a quiet environment free of distractions. Aim for 30 minutes a day, advises Kelly. “You can squeeze in that half hour pretty easily if only during your free moments–whenever you find yourself automatically starting your laptop to scan your favorite site for something to pass the time–you pick up a meaningful work of literature,” Kelly said. “Reach for your e-reader, if you like. Kindles make books like War and Peace less heavy. “

    25. What’s the real purpose of the book club in Wellington?

    A. To turn off its members’ smartphones.

    B. To let its members relax in cozy chairs.

    C. To make people share ideas about books.

    D. To provide a quiet, relax environment for readers.

    26. Slow reading has the following benefits except _______  according to Maura Kelly.

    A. sharpening the mind                       B. reducing stress levels

    C. broadening the view                       D. improving concentration

    27. What Patrick Kingsley said suggests that __________.

    A. the Internet slows our reading speed

    B. the Internet is full of mistaken information

    C. electronic devices have changed our reading patterns

    D. electronic devices enable us to have a better understanding

    28. What’s the best title for the text?

    A. Time to Go Slow Reading                       B. Electronic Devices Takeover

    C. Kindles for Readers                                D. Reading Matters More

     “When can I get a cell phone?” The answer is when your parents think you need one, though many kids seem to be getting them around age 12 or 13. Some younger kids may have them because their parents see it as a matter of safety and convenience. For example, a kid can call mom and dad when sports practice is over. And a cell phone can give kids almost instant access(快捷通道) to their parents if something goes wrong or they need help. It can give parents quick access to their kids so they can check on them and make sure they’re OK.

    If you do get a cell phone, make some rules with your parents, such as how many minutes you’re allowed to spend on the phone, when you can use your phone, when the phone must be turned off, and what you will do if someone calls you too often, and so on.

    You’ll also have to learn to take care of the phone in your life. Keep it charged(充电) and store it in the safe place so it doesn’t get lost. And whatever you do, don’t use it in the bathroom. I know someone who dropped her phone in the toilet!

    Plastic bags are a popular container in much of the world, but they are also a major source of pollution which need hundreds of years to break down, and as they do, tiny pieces can poison soil, lakes, rivers and oceans. So, environment experts urge people to reuse and recycle plastic bags.

           Maryland artist Allita Irby just does so. It all starts with the morning newspaper, and the plastic bag that the paper comes in. The mixed media artist recognized its rich possibilities three years ago. “As I was taking the newspaper out, I felt the texture (质地) of these bags. I just looked down and realized it takes three to make a braid (发辫). I’ll just put a few main materials in just to make it strong enough.” Since then, Irby has been using plastic bags to create abstract lines in her art works.

           Before using plastic bags in her pieces, Irby used natural materials like feathers, leather and dried plants, all of which contain elements that represent her Native American ancestry and identity, like her piece called “Navaho Bundles”. “I was making a hair style, a Navaho hair style when the hair was heavy and it was looped back on itself. I took the piece and looped it back onto itself and secured it with a tie.

           Ms. Irby’s neighbors praise her ability to turn wastes into treasure. Some people, like Charlotte Hogan, asked the artist to teach them how to create art from used plastic bags. Aleta Meyer expressed surprise, “ I’ve never given any more thought to what to do with a plastic bag. This is definitely different.” Shirley Watts plans to show others her art. “I want to make a masterpiece that I can put in a frame and put it on my wall and then I know that I did it,” she said.

           Allita Irby says anyone can do it and all you have to do is open your eyes and bring the outside in. 

    51. The first paragraph is written to offer _______.

    A. the conditions of making plastics

    B. the background of the story

    C. the reason for using plastics

    D. the importance of plastic bags

    52. We can learn that Allita Irby ________.

           A. will never use plastic bags herself

           B. pays much attention to her hair style

           C. was born in a Native American family

           D. only uses plastics to make art works now

    53. What do you know about Allita Irby’s art works before she used plastic bags?

           A. They are similar to Navaho hair styles.

           B. They are actually tools used in daily life.

           C. They offer Irby the inspiration to recycle plastic bags.

           D. They are made of natural materials.

    54. What do Allita Irby, Charlotte Hogan, Aleta Mryer and Sjirley Watts have in common ?

          A. They live in the same neighborhood.

          B. They are all mixed media artists.

          C. They are active in protecting the environment.

          D. They learn art from the same master.

    55. As for art works made from wastes, ________.

          A. Watts follows Irby to make art works.

          B. Meyer says she’ll never make plastic arts.

          C. Irby thinks what it needs is to discover beauty.

Yevgeny Yakut moved to the Russian capital, hoping to live better, but soon found himself one of the many homeless people in the city known for its housing shortage and high cost of living. But he thinks he has found a way out. “I was warming myself in a railway station when I saw a television report on bloggers earning money by making advertisements,” he tells the TV channel Moscow 360. A young passer-by got chatting to him about the idea, and agreed to be Mr. Yakut’s cameraman, using a smart phone to record his friend’s humorous stories of daily struggle to “find food, a place to sleep, and keep out of the way of the police”. So viewers could see how he lives in central Moscow without a home.

    They upload the regular videos to YouTube, where Mr Yakut is hoping to attract enough subscribers (订阅者) to interest advertisers in his channel. So far, the pair have attracted more than 18,000 subscribers---around half of those since Russian media began reporting his story and more than 450,000 video views.

    In one video Mr Yakut points out free shuttle bus (班车) serves that he, and others in his position, can use to get around. He also shows viewers the best place he has found to wash and shave---a modern shopping centre bathroom---and how to make use of the items other Muscovites have abandoned in the city’s bins.

    The popularity of the pair’s You Tube channel has impressed video-marketer Kirill Kalashnikov, who tells Moscow 360 that with some professional help, “this could be turned into a million subscribers within a year”. In the meantime, Mr Yakut says supporters can make donations through a Moscow drain pipe, where he hides his dollars in a deposit box made from a soft-drink bottle.

    41. How did Yevgeny Yakut find the method of living in Moscow ?

       A. Through a TV report.

       B. Through surfing the Internet.

       C. Through talks with passers-by.

       D. Through reading an economic book.

       A. His hard way to success.

       B. His belief of living a better life.

       C. His positive attitude toward hard life.

       D. His daily struggle for living in Moscow.

    43. It can be inferred that Russian media _________.

       A. are helpful to achieve Yakut’s plan

       B. supported Yakut’s idea

       C. help the homeless free at any time

       D. mainly focus on social problems
